The efforts to move non-commercial radio forward, including the struggles at Pacifica Radio, have made headlines over the last six months. But the movement to advance community radio is also a global one. At a conference this last weekend in Maine, people from grass-roots radio networks in the US held their fourth annual gathering, this time with guests from AMARC, an international coalition of community radio stations around the world.

Guest:
